The Web is evolving from a read-only environment to a strong collaborative and intelligent platform where users have access to a vast range of tools and resources. Simply said, the collaborative Web allows its visitors to communicate with it and communicate intelligently. Enormous speed, flexibility, knowledge and connectivity resulting from this evolution offer immense potential to change the competitive landscape of business as well as individuals. While embracing this change is becoming increasingly important as well as feasible for businesses, there are many implications of this shift in paradigm. It demands a different organizational structure, culture, processes and policies for business and information systems in order to reap the benefits while controlling the side-effects.
